  • Police arrest dozens outside hotel near PolyU
Police on Monday morning detained dozens of people in an area of Hung Hom near Polytechnic University, although it was not clear what crime they were suspected of.

At least 40 people were detained outside the Hotel Icon on Science Museum Road at around 9.30am.

The detainees – some masked and dressed in black – were lined up and asked to sit facing the wall, while officers checked their ID and conducted body searches.

A young man wearing a white shirt had blood trickling down his head when he was taken away.

Officers tied up the arrestees' hands and took them away in several police vans.

An officer at the scene said some were believed to have come to rescue students under police siege and stuck inside the university campus.
